B.C. improving Highway 99 to ease Surrey traffic congestion

SURREY, B.C. – The Province of British Columbia is making improvements to the Highway 99/32nd Avenue Interchange in Surrey, B.C. in order to relieve traffic congestion and increase efficiency of travel between Surrey and White Rock.

A $14 million contract for the project has been awarded to LaFarge Canada Ltd. Construction began in late September and completion is expected in spring 2023.

“This interchange is a major connection point, and by improving the flow of traffic we’ll reduce commuters’ travel times and keep Highway 99 travellers moving safely and smoothly,” B.C. Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Rob Fleming said in a statement.

An extension of the Highway 99 southbound exit ramp to 32nd Avenue will prevent the traffic queue from backing up onto the highway and a new traffic lane on the Highway 99 entry and exit ramps will improve merging and add room for vehicles, a government release stated.

Travel lanes on the 32nd Avenue diversion under Highway 99 will be reconfigured, an additional westbound lane will be added and a protected multi-use pathway will be added to the south side of 32nd Avenue under Highway 99 to improve active transportation connections in the region, the release added.
